Podcast | Stock Picks of the Day: Top 3 stocks that could return 6-8%

Vinay Rajani of HDFC Securities said the Nifty is still trading below its 20-day daily moving average, which is currently placed at 10,745.


Last week, the Nifty broke its 5-week winning streak and closed in the red with a loss of 0.99 percent. It ended Friday at 10,714. In the first 4 sessions, the index lost around 264 points while more than 60 percent of intra-week losses got recouped in the last session of the week where it rose over a percent.

The mid and smallcap indices outperformed after a long time with a 1.9 percent and 2.37 percent gain, respectively, on the last trading session of the week.

The Nifty failed to resume its upward move which was seen during Friday’s session. During the last week, it violated its crucial support placed at 10,700, derived from the upward sloping trend line, adjoining the bottoms of March 23 (9,952) and May 23 (10,417).

The Nifty is still trading below its 20-day daily moving average, which is currently placed at 10,745. For bullish confirmation, it has to close above 10,850, which is nothing but the resistance derived from the downward sloping trend line adjoining its all-time high 11,171(January 29) and intermediate top placed at 10,929 (May 15).

As far as support is concerned, 10,550 is the level to watch out for. Any level below 10,550 would aggravate bearishness in the Nifty. A close below 10,550 could push it towards its 200-DMA which is currently placed at 10,442.

Oscillators and Indicators like relative strength index and moving average convergence divergence are still maintaining a bearish stance on the Nifty daily charts.

The midcaps and smallcaps have continued their underperformance. The advance-decline ratio remained negative for the past 13 out of the last 14 sessions.

To conclude, traders should only take aggressive longs once Nifty the closes above 10,850. We might see a relief rally in the smallcap space as most stocks have been hammered down and turned extremely oversold.

Following a strict stop-loss in trading longs is advisable. Any level below 10,550 would trigger fresh momentum selling towards the next support placed at 10,442.
